DIY Spring Printable Sign

For this project you will need:

~Surface of choice

~Antique white paint

~Mod Podge

~Spring printable-You can purchase the one I used HERE from my Etsy shop.

~Jute rope

~Buttons

The sign I am using for this project is one I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby. I always take a stroll down the clearance isle just in case I can find little signs like this to use for my crafts. I used a sanding block to sand off the a majority of the black letters.

I then painted the inside of the frame with my antique white paint to cover up the remaining black so it wouldn’t show through once I mod podged my printable down.

Next, I cut down my printable to fit inside the frame and used mod podge to adhere it to my surface.

I then took some jute rope and glued it around the inside of my frame to give it a more finished look.

Last but not least, I added brown buttons topped with smaller pink buttons in all four corners of my sign.

DIY Ribbon Flower Sign

*Wood slats-Hobby Lobby

*Large popsicles sticks

*Ribbon of choice

*Jute rope

*Half wood bead

The first step is to lay all four of the wood slats down and glue four popsicle sticks to the back to make your surface. If you choose, you can use a ready made surface to save you time.

Your surface should look like the one below once you have done the previous step.

Next, I used the color black currant to paint my surface. I used a chip brush for this as I didn’t want 100% coverage.

As that dried, I took my ribbon and stacked each design together and cut them in the shape of flower petals. I ended up not using the color on the bottom right. All three of the ribbons I used came from Hobby Lobby.

I then arranged my flower petals somewhat in the shape of a flower. For the center of the flower I used rope twine and simply wrapped it around in circles until all of the inside edges of my flower petals(ribbon) were covered.

Now we have a our cute little flower. I wanted to put something in the center to hide my hot glue from where I started my jute rope so I painted a half wood bead with the same black currant color and glued that in the center. You can find the half wood beads like I used right HERE using my affiliate link.

I just love how this turned out! The perfect piece of decor for Spring and even Summer if you please!

Easter Tree Reveal

I am so excited to show you my first ever Easter tree! I finally had the space to leave my artificial Christmas tree up year round and decorate it for the different seasons/holidays! This is seriously so fun to do and keeps the house feeling cozy year round.

The first thing I did was take two rolls of burlap ribbon and draped this from top to bottom using the branches to secure every 8-10 inches. The burlap came from Hobby Lobby although you can find it many places. Deco mesh also works very well for this step.

Next, I used two strands of egg garland that I also found at Hobby Lobby and did the same with this as I did the burlap. One of the benefits of an artificial tree is being able to use the flexible branches to help secure your decorations.

Now, it’s time to fill in the rest of the tree with signs, picks, and ornaments! I had this “Easter” sitter available in my shop and decided it would look perfect on my tree! Really anything goes when it comes to decorating trees. That’s what’s so fun about it! No right or wrong way to do it!

The little glass egg ornaments are so stinkin’ cute so as soon as they came in to the shop I knew exactly what I would be using them for! Also, this egg berry pick was another piece from shop. If you don’t already, be sure to follow us over on Facebook at Lraedesign so you don’t miss out on all of these goodies during our live sales!

How cute is the Rae Dunn bunny garland?

The only items not from my store were these picks and the egg garland that I found at Hobby Lobby. The perfect Spring colors to finish off the top of my tree. So fun! If your having a hard time coming up with ideas, take a walk through your local craft store and I bet you will find some inspiration!

The tree skirt I used was from Amazon and you can find that at my affiliate link HERE!

I hope your inspired too try your own Easter tree now!

Dollar Tree Easter Egg Wreath

You may have remembered me saying recently that I had been to my local Dollar Tree for over a month. However, when I finally went, I was very surprised to see all of the changes and new items they had! Definitely an upgrade from what the had before as far as the decor and crafting supplies go. This is a super fun and easy Easter wreath using almost all Dollar Tree items!

You will need:

*Wire egg form-Dollar Tree

*Chunky white yarn-Hobby Lobby

*Decorative Easter eggs-Dollar Tree

*Decorative picks-Dollar Tree

*Ribbon-Dollar Tree

I ended up not using the larger eggs pictured above.

The first thing I did was take my chunky yarn and wrap it around my egg form. I simply hot glued my starting point to the egg form and continued wrapping the yarn around securing with hot glue as needed. As you can see, I used white yarn but any Spring color would be cute!

Once I had my wreath completely wrapped with yarn I pulled all of the eggs off of my picks and glued them around the egg leaving an opening at the bottom for my bow.

Next, I took the berry looking picks and cut pieces of each color off of the stem to use as fillers between the eggs I just glued on.

This is how it looks once everything is glued on. Of course you could always tweak it and make it your own by adding more to it but I deciding to leave mine like this!

Now for the bow. I found this super cute ribbon at Dollar Tree also. I simply took four pieces of this ribbon cut at roughly 5 inches wide and stacked them on top of each other. I used a skinny piece of ribbon and tied it tightly in the center of the ribbons. I then fanned my bow out, glued it on my wreath, and added another piece of the berry pick to the center to finish it off!

So, what do you think? Easy, cute and budget friendly! You can’t go wrong with this one!

Dollar Tree Wood Slice Easter Egg Decor

You all know I love me a good Dollar Tree craft project, so I have brought you yet another adorable diy using Dollar Tree items! Your welcome!

I hadn’t been to our local Dollar Tree for several weeks and let me tell you, I found lots of goodies when I finally made it there! In case you missed my haul from my shopping trip you can watch that right here on FB! To say the least I was very impressed. Dollar Tree has stepped up their game in the decor and craft department for sure!

You will need:

*Oval shaped wood slice-Dollar Tree

*Gift bag of choice-I chose this one from Dollar Tree

*Raffia

*Half wood beads-you can get these beads with my affiliate link HERE

I ended up not using the wood beads pictured below so disregard those. They did come from Hobby Lobby in case you were wondering!

When I seen these wood slices at the Dollar Tree, I knew I had to have one! Not only were they $5, but they were the perfect shape for an egg! My mind instantly went to work thinking what I could create with this! I also found these cute gift bags and loved the colors and pattern. So tada!

The first step is to cut one side of the gift bag off and then trace the wood slice.

Next, I used mod podge to adhere my traced shape to the wood slice. I then used my sanding block to get any excess paper that was hanging over the edges of the wood slice.

Now it’s time to outline the egg with half wood beads. I use these all the time when I am crafting and are so handy to have! You can use my affiliate link and get these wood beads right HERE!

Lastly, it’s time to add a bow. I tried a few different options but decided to go with the trusty raffia bow. Of course, I added a button in the center to give it a pop of color! I just love how this turned out!

If you want to make this into a hanger like I did, simply use a piece of jute twine or rope and staple/glue it to the back of the wood slice. You could even add wood beads for an extra pop.

So, what do you think? Will you be giving this one a try?

Wood Flower Bouquet Decor

Hello friends! I was at Target awhile back and found these wooden floral stems and this surface both in the “Dollar Spot” or “Bullseyes Playground.” I knew right away that these would make a cute project!

For this project, you will need:

*Surface of choice-mine is from Target

*Wood flower stems-Target

*Hot glue gun/gorilla glue

*Ribbon of choice for bow if desired

I prefer to use this along with hot glue when doing these type of projects. The hot glue is obviously going to be the quickest, and the gorilla glue is for longevity. You can also use E6000 in place of the gorilla glue.

First, I laid my flowers out and arranged them the way I wanted and then I used my hot glue and just a dab of the gorilla glue to adhere them to my surface. Just a heads up…the gorilla glue does expand as it dries so just a dab with do the job!

I have the light pink floral stem left and decided I wanted to put that right in the center of the bouquet. I simply broke the stem off so it wouldn’t hang over the edge and then glued it right on top of the dark pink flower’s stem.

Now it’s time for a bow of course! This is my go to ribbon for lots of projects. You can find this at Hobby Lobby.

For the bow, I took my ribbon and rolled it end over end 5-6 times. The length of my ribbon stack was approximately 6 inches. I then tied it in the center with jute twine and the “fluffed” my bow.

How stinkin’ cute! I added a cute little button to finish off the bow.

I love projects like this! Cute, budget friendly, and easy!!! I hope this inspires you to get crafty and give this a try!
